Chapelle de Pise

A chapel that looks to be 800 years old – but was only completed in 1998, built to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Edict of Tolerance (or Edict of Nantes) of 1598. The chapel is a masterpiece of craftsmanship, it is completely isolated in a remote country area and no signposts on local roads indicate its presence. Several of the columns on the loggia are carved in the manner of the high middle ages with fluted staffs and sculpted capitals similar to those visible in Carolingian or Merovingian structures. Stained glass windows are created by contemporary artist Jean-Michel Folon visible best from inside.
